This is a downer for me, I pretty exclusively race 911's. Used to own a 944, aren't a whole lot of cars that have the handling characteristics of a rear-engine 911. And certainly RUF will never match up. Obviously not gonna buy another EA product, not that, that is hard for me really. NFS is pretty childish.
I suppose I kinda back Porsche up on this, they build cars, not video games. One small chunk of licensing money isn't gonna matter much. Games like this do build loyalty though, I can honestly say Forza 1 played a role in me purchasing a 944, and the subsequent maintenance/merchandise. I do hope this changes. I do hope there is a measurable amount of backlash towards EA for this. Not that they're new to negative press though.
In the end, I know Turn 10 are car nuts and they're probably just as gutted as the rest of us. I can't stand Toyota but I would hate for them to be left out, because I know someone loves them like I do Porsche. Hope to see a remedy, was very much looking forward to getting the 928 and 356 in this iteration. Shame.
